Dragon Magazine #16

This is Dragon Magazine 16, from July of 1978. It is the first of many Dean Morrissey covers. I love this guy’s work! Such a moody, almost monochromatic color palette. Looks like this warrior has been startled away and is going for his sword. I wonder what he’s looking at outside the frame?

As with most early Dragon Magazines, I find not much to latch on to here. There’s an article on ninjas which is all right. It affords us the chance to see a (weird) take on a ninja by Dave Trampier. His samurai is pretty rad tho.
